Free speech for all
A recent comment in Speak Out stated that it's time to pull the plug on conservative talkers like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others. They also want Karl Rove and Donald Trump to be silenced. All this because they criticize President Obama. How about Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, the Huffington Post, New York Times and others who support the left? Should only their voices be heard, to maliciously slam conservatives, without a countering viewpoint?
If so, that is called tyranny, restriction of free speech. Sounds hypocritical to me. I'm no fan of Matthews, Schultz or others in the "mainstream" media, but they still get to enjoy freedom of speech, as granted in the Constitution. If you allow them to speak, then Rush, Hannity, Rove, Trump and others on the right must also be afforded the right to free speech. Read the Constitution and see that freedom of speech is not based upon the speaker's political ideology.
